We had the best time with my parents when they came out to visit! They were able to come out while Eric was out of school for Spring break the last week of February into the fist week of March. We did so many fun things while they were here. I think the high-light for the kids was going to the zoo with Grandma and Grandpa. We had so much fun! It was still a little cold for people around here (not at all cold to us Alaskans!), so there weren't a lot of people around. We took all the time we wanted to play and just wander around looking at the animals.
The most fun part about this trip to the zoo besides that Grandma and Grandpa were with us, was feeding pretzels to the geese, ducks, and peacocks. It started out when the girls were eating pretzels and we noticed the geese and ducks eating the dropped pieces. That lead to us intentionally giving small pieces to the birds. It was so cool to feed them right out of our hands! It was sure funny also! The girls were so EXCITED they could hardly contain themselves! We were surprised we didn't get in trouble for feeding the birds, but then again, there weren't many people around to see us doing it. It was so much fun!! We LOVED having mom and dad here!
I LOVE this picture! My mom is so BEAUTIFUL!
Dad and Claire got really close to the male peacock...it was so neat to see.
This was us at the end of the trip. We were on our way out of the zoo.
The brave girls feeding the duck.
It was so cool to see the male peacocks spread out their colorful feathers! They are so pretty!!
